congressional correspondent dana bash is with us this morning. who's literally gotten no sleep. three out of four voters felt that the president exceeded their expectations way different from the last time around. >> way different. and you and i have witnessed it, watched it together, in the room. and there's no question that the president came to play. mitt romney came to play, also, and that resulted in a crackling clash. you may think the debate in front of undeclared, persuadable voters, would produce polite performances. >> on government land -- >> no it isn't. >> reporter: think again. in at times this town hall looked like a schoolyard brawl. >> not true, governor romney. >> so how much did you cut? >> not true. >> i had a question and the question was how much did you cut them by. >> you want me to answer a question. >> reporter: if mem ran debates are about moments, one here was on libya. >> who was it that denied enhanced security and why? >> reporter: it was the question conservatives were waiting for. a chance to slam the president for lack security and changing stories on wha

"starting point" is, of course, the highly anticipated rematch, the second presidential debate just a day away. the race is at tight as it gets. two brand-new polls to talk about this morning. first from "the washington post"/abc news. president has a slim three-point lead among likely voters. well within the margin of error. even closer in a politico/george washington university poll this morning, the president's lead among likely voters is just one percent which makes it a statistical dead heat. battleground states now. the poll has mitt romney ahead of the president by two points, essentially tied. while the abc/"washington post" poll shows the president with a five-point lead in the battleground states. both campaigns looking forward to the debate tomorrow night. tackling president obama's lucklaster performance, as well. listen. >> he knew when he walked up that stage, and he also knew as he's watched the tape of that debate that he'
cast in ten states across the country. cnn political editor paul steinhauser is with us this morning. paul, more and more voters get a chance to go to the polls early. why is this so important? >> it is interesting, because what happens if a big development happens in this first debate or even some of the other debates and you've already cast your ballot and you want to change your mind. too late. most of the people who are voting early in these states are die-hards. ohio starting today. they're the second battleground state to start early. iowa, christine you know something about that. so it is interesting about a third of the country voted in one way, shape or form before election day four years ago. we'll see somewhere around that this time around. >> it is where you get to see the campaign flex their muscle. >> those die-hards out to the polls. >> especially important for the obama team, get them to the election site now when they're ahead. >> exactly. glad you brought up polls because we do have some polls as you well know. we have a brand new cnn/orc national poll and 50% to 47

committee and republican congressman ted poe of the state of texas joins us this morning. monday, october 1st. "starting point" begins right now. >>> good morning, welcome everybody. our starting point this morning, crunch time in the race for the white house. just two days remain before president obama and mitt romney square off in denver for the first of three critical debates. president's being prepped in nevada today. and the gop challenger has some ground to make up because a brand-new "washington post"/abc news poll this morning has the president leading by two percentage points among likely voters. it's not unusual for candidates to try to lower expectations in the days leading up to dedebate. republicans have been playing up the president's eloquence, ever since last week. but it seems somebody forgot to tell new jersey governor chris christie, because he was setting the bar high for mr. romney. listen. >> he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is, the president's view for the fu
candiotti is live for us from bellefonte, pennsylvania. susan walk me through what he says. >> reporter: hi. it's a remarkable statement coming on the eve of the sentencing. he lays the blame at the feet of a lot of people and he's not one of them. he defiantly lashes out at police, at investigators, at penn state and, yes, even the victims. >> they could take away my life, they could make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster, but they can't take away my heart. in my heart i know i did not do these alleged disgusting acts. my wife has been my only sex partner and that was after marriage. >> now why would he release it at this time? there was a meeting in chambers yesterday and the judge made it clear that jerry sandusky was not allowed to criticize the system when he spoke in court at his sentencing. what's the next best thing? arrangements were made for him to make a statement and release it by a radio station. now victims will also get their chance to speak in court after jerry sandusky talks for about five to ten minutes. some of the victims will have statements read for
. >> this is the weekend to make preparations. rob marciano following for us. thank you, appreciate it. >>> another devastating story that we're following this morning, absolutely horror. a mother came home to her apartment in new york city and two of her three children had been stabbed in their manhattan bathtub. their nanny was also in a pool of blood nearby. investigators now say the nanny is the person who killed the kids and then tried to kill herself. just a few hours later a post on the mother's blog painted a very happy picture of the family. this is one of the most horrific stories and a huge why. why, what happened? >> and that's exactly the question. and the only thing you can think about this mom and this dad, right, this morning, is heartbreak. their hearts have to be broken right now. the murder of two young children allegedly by their nanny has taken parents across new york city. it has frightened many caregivers. everyone asking what caused this nanny to apparently snap and allegedly stab two children before slashing heir own throat? the children's mother, 38-year-old marina krim, r
of his speech. it goes like this, they sent us excerpts earlier. general marshall once said he is going to say, the only way human beings can win a war is to prevent it. those words were true in his time and they still echo in ours. want to get to tara walsh, the senior communications adviser for the romney campaign. nice to see you. thanks for talking with us. >> hi, soledad. good morning. absolutely. >> so we know having read some of these excerpts that have been sent out by the campaign that governor romney's going to focus on israel, he's going to focus on the palestinian territories and no big surprise, he's going to focus on iran. why don't you spell out for me exactly what governor romney's position is when it comes to iran? >> well, listen, governor romney is going to clearly spell out the choice that there is this election, particularly when it comes to foreign policy and all of the unrest that is happening in the middle east right now and how we have to address that and that is working with our allies, that is calling terrorism terrorism when we see it, that is acting boldly a
adversaries are much more willing to test us, they're more brazen in their attacks and our allies are less willing -- >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarkey. >> reporter: the vice president appeared determined to make up for president obama's mistakes last week. almost immediately launching the attack lines obama never used in his debate. >> it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. my neighbors, they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his fed cal income tax. >> reporter: before the debate, cnn was told paul ryan's team anticipated biden being aggressive where the president was not. especially on mitt romney's infamous 47% remark. >> mr. romney's a good man. >> reporter: ryan was ready with a well-practiced retort. >> with respect to that quote, i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> i always say what i mean. >> biden's recovery plan for a demoralized democratic base was not just in what he said but
it will be about helping the 100%. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar joins from us washington, d.c., this morning. i thought it was interesting. he has just come off of a great debate performance and his campaign is completely rejuvenated. and now in a way it is like we are circling back to the 47% which, frankly the president didn't even bring up in that debate. what do you make of that? >> that's right. you know what's interesting is according to "the new york times," aides say romney wanted to correct the record during the debate but bit obama didn't bring it up so he couldn't. this is something he really wanted to distance himself from, soledad, because it has been seen as the source of a lot of problems for mitt romney in the last month. we saw polls widen between president obama and mitt romney especially in key battleground states. but make no mistake the obama campaign is not going to let him get away completely with this reversal. they have been running campaign ads with his own words in the fund-raiser and i think we are going to see them continue to hit him on the 47%
